Christchurch Shooting: Emotional Moment Māori Biker Gang Perform Haka In Moving Tribute To Terror Attack Victims

This is the powerful moment a New Zealand Māori biker gang perform a haka to honour the victims of the Christchurch Attack.It was just one of many groups who have performed the dance for the 50 people who lost their lives on Friday. A steady stream of mourners paid tribute throughout yesterday at a makeshift memorial to the 50 people killed by a gunman at two mosques in Christchurch.Dozens of Muslims stood by to bury the dead when authorities finally release the victims’ bodies. Hundreds of flowers were piled up amid candles, balloons and notes of grief and love outside the Al Noor mosque. As a light rain fell, people clutched each other and wept quietly.‘We wish we knew your name to write upon your heart. We wish we knew your favourite song, what makes you smile, what makes you cry,’ read one of the tributes, which contained cut-out paper hearts under a nearby tree. ‘We made a heart for you. 50 hearts for 50 lives.’ Two days after Friday’s attack, New Zealand’s deadliest shooting in modern history, relatives were still waiting for authorities to release the bodies. Islamic law calls for bodies to be cleansed and buried as soon as possible after death, usually within 24 hours.Photo Credit: Getty
